Re: Door handle loose on Model GSS25WGTA
There is a cover that runs up and down the door. This cover is removed simply by using a thin screw driver and peeling it off. You will find the Bolts under this cover. BE CAREFUL not to over tighten the bolts..

I think that the handle is attached either to the door edge or the face. In either case the screws are usually hidden behind a small trim panel. This needs to be removed to expose the screws. I don't know what type of screws have been used. They're usually cross heads but occasionally they require an allen key to remove them.
Many times the handle is slid on from one side or the other onto the screws. Try sliding the handle off by gently putting a screwdriver or putty knofe under the handle on the side that is still attached and pushing the handle sideways. This should remove the handle so you can remove the mounting screw and get it back on the door. then you can slide the door handle back on after getting the screw attached on the door again.
There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia
The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.
If my memory serves me correctly, you should see two posts attached to the refrigerator door right now. The handle slips over these posts and if you look closely there is a little hole in the handle where you would insert a allen key wrench to tighten the little screw against the post protruding from the door itself. With the door handle in your hand, properly match up the correct allen wrench to fit the allen screw very snug. Realign the door handle on the protrucing posts and tighten. Once finished, you should have a tight fitting door handle again. Let us know if we can help further.....Eric
